If you are planning to create an application, or any other website, you should really consider having a coming soon page. On that spash page, you should have an email signup form and some sort of social media links to keep people updated. This will generate hype and curiosity.

Humans are naturally curious, so if there is a really beautiful splash page for a website, they wonder what the website will be like and how it will look. With a coming soon page you want the user to know they’ll be missing out on the next big thing if they don’t sign up. Start your mailing list early, before your finished product is even live, is very useful. Once the product does go live, you already have a hefty list of email’s that you can announce your launch to.

With a coming soon page you are basically telling users that you are working on something. The main goal is of course to give at least a hint on what the product/website will be meanwhile having an irresistible sexy design. An amazing example of this is #2 Screenport. Once you finished designing the splash page, be sure to submit it to CSS Galleries. This will help you build SEO, Page-Rank, and Exposure. With the web being overcrowded with coming soon pages, we worked hard on finding the most beautiful ones for your viewing pleasure.

  1. I liked Watcher and Ready2Launch! Nice compilation. Thanks!

  2. well.. it is great to know this.. I should pick one of them to put on my site thx Igor.

  3. I think this is good coming soon theme too:
    (this theme avaiable for html and drupal too, check it: )

  4. We have recently done this one that we are quite fond of!

  5. Many thanks for this great job

  6. I like Watcher, but, uh………where’s the website that made it? When I click on the link you provided it just takes me to the preview.

  7. Igor Ovsyannykov March 18, 2011 at 3:43 pm

    Boris Utimisovs made the website.

  8. Sorry, it was my mistake. I thought watcher was a theme, but it’s not. It’s actually someone’s website.


    We have thought in depth about how to give enough away to entice people but also keep some mystery – we think we nailed it.

  10. This is a cool coming soon page:

  11. Igor Ovsyannykov May 16, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    I agree, looks great!

    What do you think of this one:

  13. There are definitely some lessons to be learned from Sunlight’s coming soon page. Its simplicity is impressive. If you’re looking for a simple to set up page to collect email addresses, check out Capturely.

    All you have to do is sign up, point your domain to the right spot and let the emails roll in. It’s much easier than paying for a host, setting up ftp accounts and installing WordPress for a single page.

  14. How to use this theme “BeBack Theme”?

  15. I’m trying to find out if there is any way to have a “coming soon” page on a single page without changing the existing theme, but so it looks really cool like the many ones you’ve reviewed here.

  16. is having a nice coming soon page too

  17. I came across this website. Quite nice.

  18. Great post. However, if someone wants a quick DIY solution without configuring wordpress themes they could also try out We make it really easy for someone to have a viral launch landing page up in 60 seconds.

    We also allow for custom colors and 100% customizable CSS if someone does want a more unique design than our OOTB themes offer.

    Check it out!
